About the Series
Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible.
Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books. Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition.
Exalting Jesus in Proverbs is ideal for small group study, personal devotion and sermon preparation. It's not academic. The aim is to present an easy reading, practical and friendly commentary.

What could we possibly need more desperately than Wisdom? Danny and Jon are speaking my language in their heart-warming exposition of Proverbs. A treasure I have longed for.
A wise father and son have written a wise commentary on the greatest book on wisdom ever written. Read it, and you will be much the wiser for it!
Danny and Jon have written with great fresh insight from the very old wisdom of God through Solomon. They have mined the text to explain the practical insights of Proverbs, yet their illustrations are wonderfully relevant to the age in which we live. What a blessing to the church to combine timeless wisdom with such timely illustrations!
